Position title
Account Executive
Description

We are a Kansas City based, full-service agency specializing in the building products industry. For over 20 years, we’ve partnered with our clients to dig in, get our hands dirty, and produce results driven (and award winning!) work for our clients, having fun and developing decades long relationships in the process. The building industry is booming and so is our business, that’s why we are seeking talented, hard-working individuals who aren’t afraid to wear many hats, sometimes even hard hats, to get the job done!

The Account Executive is a critical role in an agency environment like ours, with responsibility for managing the day-to-day relationship with multiple clients, while ensuring outstanding execution of all programs and projects for those clients. This role reports to the Account Manager with potential for promotion into the role of Account Manager.

The ideal candidate will have served as an account coordinator (or equivalent) for 1-2 years and demonstrated exceptional project management skills, while also demonstrating the maturity and aptitude to manage a client relationship. This means being able to present & defend work, handle feedback both good/bad, and listen to a client for insights & opportunities. They are equally comfortable working independently and collaborating with the digital and creative departments to generate ideas & develop recommendations/plans, as well as to execute existing projects. While not being solely responsible for developing larger recommendations/ plans, the candidate should feel comfortable with writing a plan.

Finally, the ideal candidate must be passionate about this industry and about learning/developing new skills. Having experience/knowledge of email marketing, CRM systems, social media management, search engine marketing, or online/offline media buying would all be of value in this position.
